Say cheese! LFFC’s bi-weekly cheese share is a favorite amongst the cheese lovers. We source our cheese for this share from local, artisanal cow, goat, and sheep farmers. Our member farmers and dairy partners pasture-raise all of their animals, which makes this share not only tasty, but humane too! Many of our fresher cheese varieties are pasteurized, while most of the aged varieties are made with raw milk. From our aged sharp cheddars to creamy, savory chevres – you will be delighted with 3 varieties of cheese on a biweekly basis to add the perfect touch to any family meal, dinner party, or hors d’oeuvre platter.
LFFC currently has four member cheese farmers. One of our most senior member cheese farmers is Aaron from PA Noble. PA Noble Farm has been in farmer Aaron’s family since 1924 when it was purchased from the Carpenter family. Previous to that, the Carpenter family purchased the plot of land from the Penn family themselves. The farm is nestled snugly against the Conestoga River where the family (primarily Aaron’s brother) raises a herd of roughly 40 cows. The family has about 85 acres total, with half of that in pasture and meadows for animals to graze, and the remaining acreage reserved for organic vegetable production. All of PA Noble’s herd are born and raised on the farm to sustain and strengthen the herd quality generation after generation. Of course, the milk is certified organic.
PA Noble’s newest addition to their already star-studded lineup is an instant favorite among the staff here at Lancaster Farm Fresh. When farmer Aaron visited just over a year ago, he came bearing the gift of a new smoked cheddar cheese whose aroma is reminiscent of a campfire on a brisk summer evening. Smokey Noble has the traditional cheddar flavor, which is further accentuated in the smoking process when it is left to steep for hours amongst the hearty, savory-smelling smoke of real wild hickory. This cheese is handcrafted in Lancaster County from the richest certified organic raw cow’s milk. We’re sure all of our LFFC cheese will speak for itself once it hits your palate.
